Honors Scholarships

There are many opportunities for awards and scholarships available to students in the Honors Program. Virtually all Honors scholarships are funded by private donors. The purpose of these grants is to provide financial support so students can take advantage of opportunities for personal, intellectual, and academic growth. Internships, study abroad programs, service work, and conferences (generally out-of-state or in another country) are examples of such opportunities.
